As rough as the Colts played, Pagano searched to find something good to take away from the game.
“We had some positive things in the first half with our first offense. I thought Luck was driving the team and then you shoot yourself in the foot. We were off late on the communication with the snap and we had a sack. We get a false start and you’re first-and-15. We get a big play to Fleener. But give Buffalo credit. They came up and smack him pretty good and he puts the ball on the carpet,” he reviewed.
“You have a chance for a great drive there. And then you have a chance for a big play at the back of the end zone to Coby. He’s been making those plays all through training camp. He’ll bounce back from that.”
Pagano said that issues on both sides of the ball are fixable.
“Batted passes, we had plenty of opportunities to make plays on both sides of the football and special teams. [But] we’ll go back to work. Everybody is accountable, top to bottom,” he voiced.
“We’ll take a look at the film [today] and we’ll go back to work. Get back up to Anderson and get things fixed. Come back and put this one behind us. We obviously got to play better and we will play better.”
The Colts have today off and then will have practices Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Indianapolis will play its next preseason game next Sunday night with a nationally-televised (Fox Sports) matchup with the New York Giants.
